So, we're talking about determining the behavior in a case that
currently fails.  Making it behave like a case that currently works
can't but be an improvement.  Making it do something that currently
never happens might be better still, or it might be equivalent, or it
might be worse.  I just don't buy the argument that somebody's got to
justify on performance grounds a decision not to allocate more memory
than we currently ever allocate.  That seems 100% backwards to me.
